From Pilates, yoga, and cycling classes to facials, body wraps, and massages, Changes in Motion?s repertoire of life-affirming services helps clients achieve health and beauty from the inside out. Students can enroll in small-group classes or one-on-one sessions with one of three licensed Pilates instructors?former dancer Effie, Power Pilates expert Emmy, or Pilates veteran Wendy. The trio rounds up Reformer machines, springboards, and a TRX suspension system to help novices and seasoned students alike strengthen and tone their cores. The studio also boasts a full class schedule packed with non-Pilates sessions, such as spinning, cross training, and yoga.
After clients work up a sweat, they can head to the spa for a 60-minute cooldown session with a licensed massage therapist, who customizes deep-tissue, Swedish, and Thai stretch techniques to individual concerns. Across the hall, licensed aestheticians use ?minence, B&G, and WoodSprite organic skincare products during facials and body wraps, hydrating skin and restoring a look of youth. Meanwhile, two noninvasive systems?the TriActive laser and electrical-stimulation machine?blend technologies to boost circulation, smooth cellulite, and tighten skin without the hassle of squeezing into a straitjacket made entirely of band-aids.
Aromas MedSpa is a full-service wellness enterprise with noninvasive treatments that heal ailments and enhance beauty. Specializing in skincare, cosmetic professionals aim Candela and Cynosure lasers at body hair, permanently reducing unwanted tufts or mutton chops. The specialists complement cosmetic procedures for the body and face with health services that eliminate unsightly warts and funguses or promote sustainable weight loss.
Aromas MedSpa's spa services incorporate new, uncommon technologies. For instance, the infrared sauna and the DermaLife Spa Jet create a two-part program of multisensory, holistic healing based on the therapeutic properties of infrared heat. In the dry carbon sauna, warm infrared rays beam deep into the body to catalyze sweating, ease chronic aches, recharge the body's inner reading light, and melt tension in the limbs. Then, the 60-gallon DermaLife pod immerses guests in clouds of soothing steam heated by infrared energy. Infused with aromatic essential oils and antioxidants, the pod's enriched atmosphere awakens the senses and conditions the skin while four LED stations illuminate droplets of vapor with colorful light shows known to soothe the overactive minds of most disco dancers.
Keeping client satisfaction at the forefront of its mission, the Avalon Med Spa and Laser Center recently underwent a complete overhaul that included acquiring the award-winning G.M. Collin product line, as well as a new therapist, physician, and staff. A medical director and board certified-internist leads a team of professionals, including one member with certification in aesthetic medicine, and special training in medical informatics. The wide-reaching expertise of its staff enables Avalon Med Spa to deliver a varied menu of aesthetic services that includes everything from laser hair removal to teeth whitening, Botox, and body wraps.
Devoted to bettering the patient experience, the center also nestles clients into a relaxing environment replete with plush couches and a waiting lounge done up in warm, neutral tones. Hardwood floors lead clients back to a private treatment room, where the elegant décor relaxes with furnishings such as draped, olive-green curtains, frosted sconces, and a wall waterfall that trickles out droplets harvested from the fountain of youth.:m]]
An active healer since 1994, Doctor of Chiropractic Scott A. Rubin hasn?t slowed down since the day he graduated cum laude from Life Chiropractic College. He then went on to complete post-grad studies in kinesiology and acupuncture, earn certifications as a power-Pilates instructor and yoga instructor, and achieve a black belt in wado kai karate. At his side is Dr. Michael Gars, a Florida State University and Life College graduate who has serviced triathletes with various techniques since 1994. All of these endeavors have added to Dr. Rubin?s holistic understanding of the human body and its wellness?an expansive knowledge that he brings to his practice at Rubin Health Center. There, he teams up with a nutritionist and licensed massage therapists to help clients reach their full wellness potential, rather than continue to live in the pain they?ve suffered since attempting to pogo stick down their staircase.
The experts personalize these plans by starting with a head-to-toe structural assessment for each patient. Depending on a client?s needs, habits, and complaints, the professionals then recommend treatments and therapies that range from chiropractic adjustments to active isolated stretching therapy. The center also focuses on time-tested healing techniques such as massages to ease stress and chronic pain, and acupuncture sessions to allay arthritis and anxiety. Yet the health gurus understand that prevention is key, and to that end augment their personal treatments with the yoga, Pilates, tai chi, and nutrition classes that take place in the center?s second-floor studio.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Jorge Gonzalez, MD, Elase Medical Spas' team rejuvenates clients with medical-grade laser procedures, skin treatments, and cosmetic injectables. As an academy for laser technicians, Elase unleashes an arsenal of advanced laser equipment upon a host of epidermal conditions. Sagging visages spring back to a more youthful state after laser skin tightening with a Candela ND:YAG laser, which helps rebuild the collagen and elastin scaffolding that keeps skin supple and plump, and supports the body's crew of construction guys. Laser hair removal eradicates unwanted strands, VelaShape helps firm up physiques with radio-frequency energy, and vein therapy reduces the appearance of veins on the face and legs.
Elase also offers treatments that tackle problem areas without a light show, such as cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Radiesse, and Restylane—which relax or plump up wrinkled areas. Alternatively, medical facials swathe skin in clinical-grade salves selected according to each skin's type and astrological sign.
